Presidents Report Gordonvale GC 04 Feb 20


Hi Members,

Firstly welcome back to all our members/new members & vistors for our first game for 2020 at Gordonvale Golf Club.

Today`s game was a single stableford event and there were 86 players today consisting of 71 men & 15 ladies. There were two new members, Ray Greig and Chris Van Eck both from Cairns GC, welcome to the FNQVGA guys. The course was a little overgrown due to the recents rains but the greens staff were out and about in an effort to reduce the rough for our visit. Many thanks to Dave (behind the bar) & Peter (carts etc) for getting us going bright and early in sensational weather which is typical in the Far North.

Our sponsor today was Stratford Painting Contractor (SPC), the owner Gordon Perry has thrown his support again behind the Vets with an even better offer than in 2019, his support to the Vets for 2020 is invaluable and much appreciated by all FNQVGA members. Remember if you need a paint job please call Gordon for a quote.

Now straight from the Teasurer to all players, it would be very much appreciated if everyone could at least attempt to bring the correct money now at registration as fees have gone up to $17 a game and correct weight would be appreciated by both Lois & Doug. Also it would be much appreciated if all members when completing their card annotate their whole golf link number on the card as these cards have to be input into the system after each game and is very time consuming when numbers are not on the cards, many thanks.

We play fortnightly now until 31 March and then resume back to weekly, please check the blog for the 2020 Program, there will be copies at registration each game for those not into techo type stuff. Our next game will be a single stableford event at Mareeba GC on the 18 Feb with Drummond Golf as the sponsor.

The Tableland Summer of Golf game next week will be at Atherton GC at 0830.

There was no ball rundown today for our first game back as every player who stayed for the presentations and did not receive a prize received a ball. This was a courtesy from John Richards the previous Secretary of Gordonvale GC who donated $60 to the FNQVGA. On behalf of those who stayed, thanks “Richo”.
